New EFI Controllers for Ricoh Toner
EFI announced yesterday that new Fiery Color Controllers E-42 and E-82 are now available for Ricoh PRO c901 Graphic Arts + print engines. The E-42 and E-82 digital front ends (DFEs) are powered by EFI’s new generation of system software, Fiery FS100 Pro.
The Fiery FS100 Pro software also allows Ricoh customers to create end-to-end workflows by integrating with EFI’s large portfolio of MIS/ERP software, eCommerce/Web-to-Print products and scheduling tools.
“The Ricoh PRO print engines are designed to deliver exceptional quality and performance, no matter how large or complex the applications,” said Tim Vellek, VP, Ricoh Production Printing Business Group. “The new Fiery FS100 Pro system makes these engines an ideal production printing solution to meet the needs of demanding printing environments. The Fiery server’s advanced color management, automation tools, ease of use and speed are critical to a print provider’s success and profitability.”
Fiery HyperRIP, included in the Fiery Color Controller E-82, is described by EFI as a unique, speed-enhancing technology that splits individual files and processes them simultaneously with multiple interpreters.
“We have incorporated advanced technology in the design of our newest Fiery platform that processes files twice as fast as the previous generation. With the addition of HyperRIP technology, some files will have an added benefit of increasing that speed by another 40 percent,” stated John Henze, VP of Fiery Marketing, EFI.
EFI continues to explain that Fiery FS100 Pro is the first, and currently only, DFE that carries a 100 percent perfect pass rating from VIGC’s PDF RIP Audit. PPML 3.0 on the Fiery FS100 Pro provides an open, device-independent standard for producing personalized print applications in high volumes.
The FS100 Pro also includes: Fiery JobMaster, a make-ready solution to assemble complex documents; Fiery JobFlow, which provides prepress capabilities in a browser-based solution; Fiery Color Profiler Suite, integrated in-RIP colour management; and the Fiery Command WorkStation 5.4 user interface.
